A play about death. By focusing on three dying people and their loved ones, it illustrates the five stages of dying identified by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. But it also focuses on the idea that, while dying, people are still living. Enjoy every sandwich, as Warren Zevon said. Very affecting.

I'm giving it a second reading before auditions tonight. ( )

I loved this play. It really packed a punch. It takes you into so many directions that you almost forget it is about death and dying until the very end. My text had stage layout, and set design which I found just as fasicinating as the story itself. ( )

I've seen this one a couple of times now, and we're putting it on next semester so I thought I should go ahead and read it. This one plays so much better than it reads. Cristofer's work is not about the words, but the ideas, which are better focused when there is an actor in front of us. That said, still a brilliant piece. ( )
